Love these pictures, Richard! Thanks for taking the time.

Laurel & Hardy have always been favorites of mine and even more so when I read they were pals in real life.

I love these pictures as well.

Now a question for the body: What made a St. Regis a St. Regis? And I wonder why Studebaker dropped the name (which got picked up by Dodge in 1979?

Might the younger guy (the one in the middle) be movie producer Hal Roach?
Edit: I just did a search for Hal Roach pics, and I have concluded that the guy in the middle is NOT Hal Roach.

Yup, I knew Laurel's grimace and Hardy's paunch anywhere from the moment I saw the photo :).

I can recognize Laurel and Hardy but only from reruns of reruns of reruns and maybe yet another rerun and the car a 1932

I recognize the one on the right from a John Wayne film except, in that film he was wearing a coon skin hat.

Qwik quiz: name that film.

This site is fun:
http://www.waxapple.org/articles/archives/98

The middle subject is not Hal Roach. Here is Hal with his wife and son:

Is it a young Paul G. Hoffman? Vernon plant exec? Hollywood dealer to go with those dealer plates on the Brougham? Fred Fish?

Second of the pics Brent found came from the same shoot as Mr. Quinn's original post:

http://farm4.static.flickr.com/3630/3390046312_72f84eb998.jpg

That's one of the back lot gates of the Roach Studios in Culver City but I still couldn't tell you who the middle guy is. Since Babe's out of character (check out the hand with the cigarette, draped over the door handle ;)) and the car's wearing a dealer plate my guess is he's whoever delivered the car and this is a courtesy shot for the dealership.

Well, no one got all the answers correct. Of course the famous comedy team of Stan Laurel (left) and Oliver Hardy (right) flank an executive of the Hal Roach studio (I believe his name was Kenneth Porter). The car is a 1932 President model 91 St Regis Brougham. No one knows where this regal sounding name originated but the car was similar in function to the earlier Victoria bodies. The doors were so long that back seat passengers could exit without disturbing those in the front seat! Studebaker offered this model on all four series in '32 which included the President, Commander, Dictator and Six. While the bodies were identical on the Dictator and Six the President and Commanders were both longer (with the President being the longest). Identical bodies were carried over to the 1933 model year. Studebaker continued to use the name St Regis through the 1937 model year to designate the standard 2 door sedans but they lacked the elegant nature of the originals.

Stan and Ollie appeared together in 106 films. They starred in 40 short sound films, 32 short silent films and 23 full length feature films, and in the remaining 11 films made guest or cameo appearances (Wikipedia). They are probably the most well known and beloved comedy team of all time.

Yes, I have all of the other photos taken during this photo shoot at the Roach studios and posted above (plus others). Since they are made from the original 8 X 10" negatives they are remarkably sharp.

Keep up the good posting Richard.
